Irish Water, in partnership with Cork City Council, has replaced ageing water mains in Turners Cross to improve security of supply, improve water quality and reduce high levels of leakage.
|Beaufort Park||Father Mathew Road||O'Connell Avenue|
|Congress Road||Friars Road||O'Connell Crescent|
|Derrynane Road||Hollyville||St. Anne’s Park|
|Doyle Road||Mercier Park||St. Patrick’s Road|

The works took place in two periods beginning December 3 2018 with works on O’Connell Avenue, moving to Friars Road, Congress Road and Derrynane Road (between Congress Road and Friars Walk). Works ceased for Christmas with the works beginning again in January 2019. All excavations were temporarily reinstated for this break.
These works were carried out as part of Irish Water’s national Leakage Reduction Programme and were carried out on behalf of Irish Water by Coffey Northumbrian Ltd.
A Reliable Water Supply
- Replacement of water mains and service connections will reduce the instances of bursts and water outages and will ensure a reliable supply of water to customers and local businesses in the area
- Replacement of water mains and service connections will eliminate existing leaks and reduce the amount of clean drinking water lost into the ground
Improved Water Quality
- Removing existing old cast iron and lead from the public water network and replacing them with new pipes will reduce the risk of contamination
Improved Operation and Maintenance
- These works will deliver cost savings by providing improved water network operation that will require less maintenance in the future
